CPIM / CSCP: A Comparison

APICS CPIM or APICS CSCP: Which is right for me?

APICS CPIM or APICS CSCP: Which is right for me?

The APICS CPIM certification focuses primarily on manufacturing and provides an in-depth view of materials management, master scheduling, production planning, forecasting, and quality improvement within the confines of the operation.

The APICS CSCP certification takes a broader view, extending the outside of a company's internal operations to encompass all of the steps throughout the supply chain—from suppliers through the company to the end consumer—and how to effectively manage the integration of these activities to maximize a company's value chain. CSCP is considered a high level certification, appropriate for those with experience in supply chain management, and can be a more difficult certification to obtain.
